Risk factors to consider:

Dependence on Suppliers: The company’s business depends on its relationships with a limited range of Suppliers, and any adverse changes in such relationships (For example: certain Suppliers are increasingly focused on driving online demand to their own websites and may cease to supply with the same level of access to travel inventory in the future) or inability to enter into new relationships, could adversely affect the business and results of operations.

Growing dependence on hotel bookings: The company’s revenue is substantially dependent on the hotels and ancillary bookings whose contribution has significantly increased from 35.69% of revenue from operations for Fiscal 2021 to 67.83% for Fiscal 2023 and was 72.47%for the nine months ended December 31, 2023. Factors that may negatively impact the hotels and ancillary bookings could have an adverse effect on the business, prospects, results of operations, and financial condition.
